There are lots of things to do in London, but it might be a bit overwhelming to figure out where to go and what to see first, especially if you don’t have much time. From shopping to historical buildings and towers, to the various other stereotypes surrounding British culture, this list will give you the top touristy things you should check out while you’re in the city.
There are many different markets in London to explore that offer a variety of clothing, accessories, artwork, and delicious food! When I was in London, I was able to visit four different markets; Spitalfields Market, Camden Market, Camden Lock, and Borough Market. Each of these markets has its own distinct feel and caters to a certain crowd. Below you’ll find a quick description of each market, where they’re located, and what they offer, along with some photographs of each.
Even though I was only in Edinburgh for a day, I took hundreds of photos as I explored the city (trying not to bump into anyone or trip over anything as my eyes were fixated on the beautiful buildings surrounding me) and figured a photo essay would be the best way to share the rest of my time in the city with you! After the high-up city views of Edinburgh after our hike up Holyrood Park, scouring the streets for the best – and cheapest – place to fill our bellies, and checking out the “other side” of the city, here are the rest of my photos.
After spending half a day touring around the city, the question that you’re probably going over in your head is, “where to eat in Edinburgh?”. If you walk down any street, you’re sure to pass dozens of unique cafes and enticing restaurants, making it even more difficult to settle on just one (especially if you’re only in Edinburgh for a day and/or if you’re the worst decision maker when it comes to food.. Guilty!). Here are a few options of where you can grab some grub in this city.
Looking for a hot new restaurant to check out? Look no further than The Continental in Pacific Place. This restaurant, owned by Swire Hotels, has taken over the space that once housed Domani. If you ever had the opportunity to eat at Domani, you would know that the atmosphere, decor, and food did not disappoint; The Continental is no exception.
A few weeks ago Foodie Club teamed up with Maximal Concepts for the first section of their MaxFoodLab challenge: The Ultimate Fast Food Burger. As part of this partnership, Foodie had 90 burgers to give away from Blue Butcher for lunch over three days. I was lucky and quick enough to get a hold of one of these freebies!
